Grimalts too Good in Bolivia
After a silver medal at the South American Games, Chile’s Grimalt cousins have had another success on the South American beach volleyball circuit, winning the Bolivia leg of the tour.
Brazil’s Fabio Bastos and Saymon Santos were easily swept aside in Sucre, with the Esteban and Marco Grimalt triumphing 21-9, 21-14. The new victory leaves the Chilean pairing second on the standings, just 20 points behind Brazil, who have 900 points.
It was the second time that Los Grimalt had reached the top of the podium during this year’s circuit, having beaten Venezuelan opposition to take the title in Peru. The tournament game as Bolivia was formalising it’s case in The Hague to ask Chile for a return of sovereign right to the sea.
